Walter Krucoff Notice


Walter was born June 9, 1939 at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. He grew up at the corner of Eldorado Ave and Belle Avenue next to Forest Park High School, and graduated from Polytechnic High School in 1957 where he was a member of Theta Phi and the JV championship ice hockey Poly team in 1955. It was the last year of high school ice hockey in Baltimore. Games were played at the Sports Centre on North Avenue and Charles Street but when the property was sold to a bank, league games were to be played at Carlin's Park but the ice rink burned down in January 1956. His father, Maxwell Krucoff, owned Maxwell's Prescription Pharmacy on the northwest corner of Fremont Avenue and Laurens Street, where Walter worked during high school. After graduating from the University of Maryland in College Park with a mechanical engineering degree in 1963, his first job was with the Army Corp of Engineers where he rehabilitated Ocean City, MD's South Jetty. Walter, a resident of Crofton, MD for most of his life, was a project manager for the Department of Veteran Affairs in Washington, DC for 40 years building veteran hospitals and cemeteries. He was an avid athlete, competing in triathalons and other races throughout Maryland in the 1980s through 2000s. He served as president of the Crofton Swim and Tennis Club swim team, 1978 to 1990, and was known by many in Crofton as the man who was always running, biking, or walking around Crofton Parkway.
